Abstract

Numerous evaluations show that community health worker (CHW) programs yield success. While not originally used in the United States, CHW program achievements have deservedly garnered the attention of many for their ability to impact various costly and often preventable diseases/issues, while mobilizing a non-clinical lay workforce to deliver the interventions, thus illustrating their public health relevance. This paper aims to provide an overview of CHW program outcomes, challenges with incorporating utilization of CHW programs into health systems, and options for funding mechanisms for CHW programs.
